    EVERYTHING in the Kimberley region of WA ends up red.

    The soil is red, the dust is red and, eventually, even the white gum trees end up with a red tinge.

    Thanks
    Anyone having to pretend this interesting stuff is totally in the wrong forum!
    These blocks are just too cool. I am very happy these babies are still a few weeks away as my funds are in pretty much the same state

    I didn't cut the blocks or I would have left more sapwood.
    These came from some friends in Western Australia with a small mill.

    Here are some photos from when they were collecting the burl.




    After that I had them cut blocks and send them because shipping from Australia is so darned expensive. I couldn't afford to have them send big slabs.

    Littleroundman is correct about everything being red.
    See the ground where he is cutting, red. That is a white t-shirt he is wearing, now red. (just teasing about the t-shirt)

    Here is what he ended up with.


    He must have a really heavy duty suspension in that old van because each slab is probably a couple hundred pounds.
    This wood is very dense and heavy.
